Mid life crisis, huh? I'm guessing she's the one have it because it sounds like the only one having issues is your partner. It can be very hard to not let other people's opinions negatively influence you, especially when they mean a lot to you, but please don't let this completely eat away at you. Talk to your partner, then decide if it's best to try to work through things or take your own routes through life. Wishing you the best!
My fiancè doesn't like most of the things I like. I love different foods, different genre of movies, different activities, and different styles. But I'm not a picky guy. That's what I love about her. It introduces me to new things, new foods, new activities, new music and new styles. It's interesting, and there's always something new to learn. You just gotta compensate here and there. Share the experience.
I'm in the same boat #9, yet I feel like our relationship could last much longer than those of people who have similar tastes but different aspirations ! This FML could go both ways ; either the girl really criticizes him about everything and is a gold digger, or the OP needs to chill out and realize that his partner is not obligated to have identical tastes !
Plus, I feel like op would've known all those things years ago, when the relationship just started. The fact that they're tastes are different shouldn't be new information. With that said, I also see how this could be taken the other way, and she's just now criticizing him for all those things, or complaining about it. As #46 said, this FML could go either way.
